The Continental Flying Spur was a derivative of the Continental GT, the first model introduced by Bentley Motors following its acquisition by the Volkswagen Group in 1998 and the first Bentley to employ mass production manufacturing techniques. Premiered in 2003 at the Geneva Motor Show, the Bentley Continental GT realised the concept of the 1994 Java concept car as a more affordable Bentley, to be manufactured in larger volumes than hitherto had been the norm.
The Continental GT was powered by a 6.0-litre twin-turbocharged W12 engine producing 552bhp and 479lb/ft of torque. A Torsen-type permanent four-wheel-drive six-speed transmission was standard equipment, and the Continental GT could accelerate from 0-62mph in 4.8 seconds on its way to a top speed of 197.6mph. A mechanically identical Continental GTC Convertible was made available for 2006, followed by another version of the Coupé: the range-topping GT Speed. Before then (in 2005) Bentley had launched the Continental Flying Spur, a four-door saloon variant that took its name from the 1960s original.
Currently displaying a total of 58,950 miles on the odometer, this magnificent Bentley Continental Flying Spur is finished in Navy Blue with Cream/Navy Blue leather interior, the latter equipped with a rear entertainment system including headphones. The car has had only two owners from new and comes with its Bentley service book recording full service history (bar one service). Last serviced 2,000 miles ago, the car comes with bills totalling £15,000, two sets of keys, and a V5C document.
